New England Film Academy workshop Nov. 7 & 8

[Received this notice from Chris Watkins, director of the New England Film Academy.]

We are all story tellers. Everyone has a story to tell. Whether it's an idea for a great script, your family history or you want to share your company or organization's vision, these are all stories and one of the most compelling ways to share them is visually, through film. Filmmaking is a powerful medium that can accomplish so much, from educating and informing to entertaining, in a short amount of time.

In this two-day intensive workshop you will be introduced to the entire movie making process, both narrative and documentary style. Local professionals specializing in different aspects of filmmaking will lead mini-workshops over the course of the weekend, ranging from screenwriting to lighting & camera work to editing. Working in production teams you will get a chance to make a short film scene as part of this whirlwind weekend. From concept to final cut, we will walk you through it all.

The goal of the weekend will be to prepare you to make your very own project, to tell your story, whether it be a short film, a documentary, a commercial or web-based project, all the while networking you with other aspiring, local filmmakers. Take a look at the topics we'll be covering. Space will be limited to only 8 participants!
